Creating Many to Many relationship between the accounts records in salesforce

0 votes
Is there a method to link one account record to multiple additional account records in Salesforce using a many-to-many relationship format? We can't construct many-to-many relationships with the same object type in Salesforce, therefore this isn't doable the traditional method. Could someone please offer a special method or code to accomplish this? I have a need to link Account A with Account B and Account C, for example, so that I may access Account B and C's contacts on Account A.

In Salesforce, you'll need a joiner object with two master-details to account for a many-many relationship (There is actually already a standard object called Partner that may fit your needs).

It's definitely easier to construct a simple visualforce page that queries and displays the contacts of connected accounts to see the contacts of associated accounts.

In Salesforce, it is not possible to directly create a many-to-many relationship between two records of the same object type (e.g., Account to Account). However, you can use a junction object to achieve a similar effect. A junction object serves as a bridge between two objects and allows you to establish many-to-many relationships. Here's how you can accomplish this:

Create a custom object to serve as the junction object between the Account records. Let's call it "Account Junction" for this example. This object will have two master-detail relationships, one to Account A and another to Account B/C. Additionally, you may want to add any other relevant fields to the junction object if needed.

Hope this helps!
